The EMILI project (“Emergency Management in Large Infrastructures”) is a European project aimed at creating a new generation of control systems for large critical infrastructure (ICs) such as power grids, telecommunications systems, airports, subways, trains and pipelines. These ICs are currently experiencing substantial technical, economic, organizational, political and legal changes. Its importance in society is growing in all aspects, and the set of dependencies between them is growing more and more.
Under these conditions, we need a new form of control to provide security in ICs, especially in emergencies and crises. The EMILI approach is based on a new generation of technologies such as complex event processing (CEP), the active Web and the Semantic Web.
EMILI unites leading research groups in data management and operational management, complex event processing, reactivity, knowledge representation and SCADA systems with industrial partners that provide use cases and “know-how” for SCADA systems in airports, public transport, and electrical networks.
The other project partners are:
- Fraunhofer Institut (Germany) (Project leader)
- Skytec AG (Germany)
- Asit AG (Switzerland)
- CWI (Centrum voor Wiskunde en informatica) (Netherlands)
- Ludwig-Maximilians Universität München (Germany)
- Institut Mihajlo Pupin (Serbia)
Grupo AIA’s role in the project is the development of intelligent interpretation systems for real-time SCADA alarms and events in the grid.
The project ran from 2010 to 2012.
